I appreciate the role of the SEC in protecting investors. Nevertheless, I must protest the proposed rule being considered which affects leveraged funds. I own these funds. I am perfectly capable of managing the increased risk, which has been sufficiently explained to me. This rule is unnecessary and sets a dangerous precedent for investors. We are fully capable of understanding leveraged and inverse funds and I do not want the government evaluating my ability to do so in this or any other investment. I am also concerned about the freedom of public markets. Thank you for considering these comments.
